22 Cartoonists from Around the World Respond to Trumps Election Win | BlazePress

I do not know if the liar-in-chief is a pedophile, as has been claimed. I do not know if the Biggest Liar in the United States (#BLOTUS) is a pervert as has been reported.

I do know that he is a self-avowed sexual predator. And that fact alone is enough for me to want him removed from public office as fast as legally possible. Every minute he remains in office increase the irreparable shame that stains our country’s honor and our global reputation.

History will indict us. The verdict will not be kind. It will be just, but it will not be kind.

the anger of greatness

This quote by one of the greatest Presidents in our history says a great deal about our President elect. Sadly, it’s already obvious that not all our Presidents can be great leaders.

Explosive rants on Twitter in response to perceived, or even real,  personal insults is not the kind of anger that points to greatness. Uncontrolled outbursts of verbal abuse against those with whom you disagree is vindictive. It is the petty anger of smallness.

The anger of greatness is being furious at inequality and injustice, being incensed by bigotry and racism, seething at hunger in a world of plenty. The anger of greatness is the anger that leads to a better world for all.

I cannot see any such anger in our soon-to-be new President. He demonstrates plenty of anger. Sadly. it’s not the anger of greatness
